Regardless of who the Democratic nominee for President is, the 2020 election is eight months away and the need for action is increasingly urgent. We hear more and more from people who are struggling to figure out what they can do now to have an impact.

We believe Movement Voter Project (MVP) provides the best way for those of us who live in Massachusetts or other non-swing states to use our $$ dollars $$ to impact the 2020 elections and to help take back our country for years to come.

MVP raises funds for the strongest local, community-based groups, organizing those voters who most need to be engaged, primarily in the crucial swing states — Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Arizona.  

The groups that MVP supports are amazing grassroots organizations that:

  • Mobilize hard-to-reach, low-turnout voters — especially voters of color and young people — whose participation in 2020 may mean the difference between victory and defeat.
  • Are already rooted in communities where they work year-round on current issues their neighbors care about.
  • Will exist after the election, continuing to educate voters and empower communities to elect candidates that serve their interests.
All funds contributed will go to the local organizations in swing states doing voter mobilization work.

Tom Mendelsohn, Eastern Mass staffer for MVP, will present the organization’s strategy and answer questions.

If you cannot attend, please consider as generous a contribution as you can to  MVP’s Big Five Battleground Fund, which supports groups in the states most likely to determine the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

The mission of Arts at the Armory is to provide an inclusive and accessible venue for arts, cultural and community events, exhibitions, markets, classes and more.
